UTP Interviews Jason Navarro of Break Anchor

Oh hey, this was exciting. Pretty recently Mr. Brandon asked me if I wanted a promo of the new Break Anchor 7". I of course wanted it because it exists. He also asked if I wanted to do an e-mail interview with Jay Navarro of Break Anchor and formerly over The Suicide Machines and currently of Hellmouth. Its quick, dirty, and I only get embarassed once. If I should be embarassed more than once just don't tell me.

Break Anchor Makes It Official and Joins Up With Paper + Plastick

Good news everybody. Break Anchor is putting out their first 7" EP titled Blackhearts and Blackouts on Paper + Plastick. Does Break Anchor not mean anything to you yet?

well, Several months back a long time friend of mine shared some demos on bandcamp from Jay Navarro's newest band Break Anchor. The sound was a departure from the thrash metal of Hellmouth and the ska/punk/hardcore sounds of The Suicide Machines, and also features Cris Golan of The Story So Far, King For A Day, plus Kyle Gree and Dan Stover of Seized Up. Since I first heard those demos the bandcamp page went quiet and eventually the demos disappeared off the page altogether. Well, that was until today. 

The band's first officially released song 'A Failure of Epic Proportions' is available over at Spinner (click this link and then look for the little black oval). The song is a really great mid-tempo pop-punk number that shows off the sounds and personality of the band. The lyrics are raw, angry, depressed and mix together perfectly with the throaty growls and melodic tendencies that Jason perfected during his days with the Suicide Machines. Break Anchor also take the often enjoyable route of shared vocals with Kyle lending a smoother sound that balances out Jason's voice. I may be a bit of a Jay Navarro fanboy, but I'm all but certain the rest of the EP is going to totally fantastic.

The current release date for Break Anchor's Blackhearts and Blackouts is set for March 20th, 2012
